Obituary for David M. Goodwin

David M. Goodwin, 55, a longtime Hyde Park resident, died on Monday, September 24, 2018 at the Montefiore Nyack Hospital following a short illness. He left this world peacefully in the company of his wife and children.
       Born in Schenectady on May 8, 1963, he was the son of the late William Goodwin and Geraldine Zell Goodwin. He was a graduate of Linton High School in Schenectady and Hudson Valley Community College in Troy.  He was hired as a tool and die maker for IBM directly out of college and worked there for 32 years.  He transitioned to Global Foundries in 2015.
        On September 22, 1990, he married the former Gabrielle Richard. Mrs. Goodwin survives at home.In addition to his wife, he is survived by his two sons, Zack and Kyle, both of Hyde Park; sister, Deborah Debes, and husband, Keith, of Texas; brother, Edward Goodwin, and wife, Patsy, of Texas; half-sister, Jennifer Goodwin of Burnt Hills, NY; 28 nieces and nephews; and Kristen Phillips, who was like a daughter to him.   He had an extended family of in-law and cousins that loved him.
       Dave loved cars and was an avid Mopar enthusiast and collector.  He was proud of his Barracudas, one of which, a 1969 Mod Top, was featured in Hemmings Motor News classic car edition.  With Dave, every week there was something new coming… a sticker, a tail light, maybe a quarter panel.
       He also liked hunting and shooting with his friends in Middleburgh.  For Dave, it was more about the socialization than the actual hunt.
       Many weekends one could find him at his second home on Tug Hill.  He loved to go up and get away from it all.  Although only owning it for a few years, Dave was in his element there.  There were no schedules.  If he wanted to just sit by the woodstove and chill, that’s what he did.  He loved to sit outside at night and listen to the quiet.  He made some good friends in his time there and always spoke about it with a smile on his face.
       Dave was a man of few words.  He forged some close friendships in his life.  There were a select few that he could really open up to.  That was big for Dave. 
       In keeping with his wishes, cremation has taken place.Memorial calling hours will be from 1 to 4 pm, Saturday, September 29, at Sweet’s Funeral Home, Rte. 9, Hyde Park.
       A celebration of Dave’s life will be at 3 pm during the visitation. Rev. Thomas Fiet will officiate.
       In lieu of flowers, the Goodwin family respectfully requests memorial donations to the National Stroke Association, 9707 East Easter Lane, Suite B, Centennial, CO 80112. (www.stroke.org)   To send an online condolence or for directions, please visit www.sweetsfuneralhome.com.
